Raise the Titanic Reviews
It's an alright movie.. that's about it.
That aside, this is a movie that creates a warm feeling in the cockles of my heart because it captures the imagination. Granted, it's full of flaws that at the time weren't exposed (Titanic had not been located yet) but it is a great imaginative story- and sorely dated (Russians as the baddies, anyone?) After the success of Sahara, I would be interested to see the remake of this film, even if it were animated- I'm sure the scene of it coming out of the water would be even more breathtaking.
When I first saw the movie poster for this film on Google Images, I was pretty excited. To my luck, the movie was shown a few nights later on TV.
Oh my God, this movie was awful! Acting is terrible and the story was changed significantly from the book. What bothered me the most was the lack of suspense in the film. There wasn't a single moment in the film where I was on my toes wanting to see what happened next (to be honest, I just wanted to turn the TV off, but foolishly continued to watch, waiting for Titanic to make her appearance). The only good part of the film is watching the ship rise, but even that was poorly put together.
For those who read the book, I beg you not to watch this movie (it is a complete disappointment).
